World Wide Satellite Communications

Communications using Aviation Avionics Equipment requires a basic common knowledge that is taught to every pilot in pilot training.  Each becomes familiar with technique, proper usage, and respective rules and regulations. Communications using other devices is another issue entirely.  It requires initiative and extra effort to become acquainted  with equipment types, availabilities, capabilities, proper usage, technique, and appropriate events or times to use such equipment.

There are many choices for alternative communication devices, and there are various features to consider when making that choice.  Ironically, there is very little, if any, training or explanation that accompanies these non-aviation communication devices.  And, there is very minimal understanding how the devices perform in general aviation aircraft or in remote environments

A general aviation pilot must consider several details when deciding on secondary communications - connectivity, coverage, purpose, mobility, practicality, price, availability, size, weight and balance, and equipment feature enhancement.  

Another issue to consider is the intent of each general aviation pilot, their respective aircraft, mission in aviation and how to prepare for the security issues that are now enforceable by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

  • When a pilot is concerned about safety a Satellite Phone is universal for connectivity.
  • When a pilot is concerned about Survival a Satellite Phone is the ultimate choice for communications because of the total coverage that is afforded by the communications satellite.
  • When a pilot is concerned about Security the Satellite Phone can assist in communications from any remote location.

The Satellite Phone is the communications device of choice for total universal usage contacting flight service, customs, law enforcement, family, and medical assistance. Clearly, one call from a Satellite Phone could save a life, eliminate FAA scrutiny, or inform Family of flight intentions.
